The Journeys of Kazwini

USEFUL men, carrying on useful work, do not become angry if they are called useless. But the useless who imagine that they are operating in a significant manner become greatly infuriated if this word is used about them.

'I visited,' says Kazwini, 'one group of sincere-enough Sufis. They practised invocations and strummed music on strings.

'I listened to the discourses of eminent authorities, and attended the festivals of the Masters, living and dead.

'I donned the patched robe and begged from door to door, as recommended in the classics. I prayed, I fasted and I gave charity.

'I learned the intricate gyrations and litanies, and took part in the Stillness.

'I mastered the ability to contain the inner agitation.

'I learned how to erase my "I", and how to restore it, purged.

'Then I met the Proof himself. The Proof said to me:

'"What do you seek?"

'I said:

'"I seek the Master."

'The Proof said:

'"Had you asked for more action, I would have given it to you. But as you desire Truth, I shall conduct you to the Truth."

'He conveyed me to the Master. And the Master taught me what all the outwardness which I had studied really meant.

'When I returned to the world, none would listen, and the outwardness continues. As the Master predicted to me, it will continue until the end of time.'

Removal of resistance: Also, "The Commanding Self". Unification: And indeed many others, eg "Special Illuminations" or "Knowing how to know" or "Learning how to learn". All manner of books. They are there and theoretically under some circumstances if approached in a way which is 'sensible' (in the Chomsky sense of the word) at a 'holistic' level could be useful to you, or someone.
